The decadence and absurdity of the surrealist movement live large in my small collection of truly esteemed aesthetics. Millie and her companion typify this truth for me. The casual sip, the vintage hat, and the subtle presence of the peacock tie it up neatly with a reddish-orange bow.  This work was blanketed first with the torn, yellowed pages of a novel. Then it was painted over with transparent acrylic. The image itself is done in oil. The work comes wired, ready to hang.
